Description - Models of Democracy by David Held

In a succinct and far-reaching analysis, David Held provides an introduction to major theories of democracy from classical Greece to the present, along with a critical discussion of what democracy should mean today. This new edition has been extensively revised and updated to take into account significant transformations in world politics. A new chapter on deliberative democracy has been added, which focuses on how citizen participation can be increased in politics, and how that participation can become more informed. Like its predecessor, the third edition of Models of Democracy combines lucid exposition and clarity of expression with careful scholarship and originality, making it highly attractive to students and experts in the field. The third edition will prove essential reading for all those interested in politics, political theory, and political philosophy. Praise for the second edition: "Held's new book on models of democracy is itself a model of its kind-a meticulously edited, easily accessible, and clearly signposted critical analysis of theories of democracy from classical antiquity to the present day." -Ethics "In this timely and thought-provoking study, Held provides a critical reassessment of major theories of democracy from ancient Greece to the present, along with his own prescription for revitalizing contemporary democratic politics...This volume should be read and pondered by anyone interested in the future of democracy."-The Annals
